This week on Brewbound Frontlines, our panel will discuss efforts companies and organizations are taking to make the craft beer industry more diverse. Tune in on July 16 at 3 p.m. ET. Joining the panel are: Brooklyn Brewery brewmaster Garrett Oliver, who recently helped launch the Michael Jackson Foundation for Brewing and Distilling, which will provide scholarships to Black, indigenous and people of color (BIPOC) to pursue brewing or distilling education Tired Hands Brewing co-owner Julie Foster and brewer Christina Alleva, who will discuss their brewery’s Brewing Diversity Internship, which provides hands-on brewing experience to women and BIPOC Boston Beer Company director of partnerships Jennifer Glanville and Chula Vista Brewery founder Tim Parker, who will discuss Boston Beer’s Brewing the American Dream program, which connects food and beverage entrepreneurs with capital and business coaching All three organizations seek to remove barriers to entry to the white, male-dominated beer industry. At Tired Hands, Alleva graduated from the brewery’s internship program to become a full-time brewer. In addition to supporting entrepreneurs in the food, beverage and hospitality industries, Brewing the American Dream has a pipeline just for craft breweries that selects one brewery owner to receive a grant and a year of in-depth brewing and business coaching from Boston Beer employees. Our panel will discuss how these initiatives and more can help make craft beer more inclusive and provide equity for non-white, non-male employees and owners. Set a calendar reminder to tune in.
